ART 192 Experiencing the Found Object

This course offers students an opportunity to understand how to manipulate and assemble found materials into exciting and convincing sculptural forms that transcend their original source into poetic visions. The Dada and Surrealists founded the Art of Assemblage at the beginning of the twentieth century. Since then many artists have assembled found objects-either natural or pre-fabricated-into structures that equal any other sculptural medium.
